Biohome Plus media is identical to Biohome Standard except that a variety of trace minerals have been added to enhance the medias ability to support beneficial bacteria growth. It is distinguished by it’s red colour.
Biohome Plus is made from industrial grade materials to ensure a long working life. With a porosity of approx. 42%, it has a great usable surface area for bacterial colonisation.
The colonisation of the media by beneficial bacteria is very fast, normally between 21-42 days. It recovers fast after the use of medications and can be easily transferred between systems. Complimentary filter starter balls are shipped with each order.
Biohome Plus is an efficient biological filter media and good mechanical filtration must be used prior to it.
It is most suitable for internal, small external, hang on back (HOB) and overhead aquarium filters. It may easily be broken up into smaller pieces to fit into smaller filter chambers.
Biohome Plus allows both nitrifying (aerobic) and denitrifying (anaerobic) bacteria to grow on and through its unique structure.
Trace elements added include: Titania, Alumina, Ferric Oxide, Lime, Magnesia, Potash, Soda, Phosphorus Pentoxide, Chromium Sesquioxide, Manganic Oxide, Zirconia, Hafnia, Zinc Oxide, Barium Oxide, Strontia, Stannic Oxide, Sulphur Trioxide.
The trace elements are fused into the structure of this media and are there to enhance bacterial processes only, not to alter water chemistry.
As this media is inert it allows you to raise or lower the pH to suit certain fish species without having a buffering effect.
This media is sold by the kilogram. 1 kilogram of media is approximately equal to 1.0 cubic litre.
For best nitrate reduction use approx. 1kg per 100 litres of aquarium water.
